The Spotlight: The Dating Woman's Workbook

Help! SF looking for SM who is funny, entertaining, trustworthy and loving. Hmmmm… if that is what the SF wants why does she keep coming across losers, cheaters and wimps?

The Dating Woman’s Workbook is a personalized book—for your eyes only— that helps you answer that very question. The sassy workbook allows you to detail your dating habits and instead of being a “self help” it is a “self awareness” book. First you truthfully answer questions about yourself and log your dates, which allows you to identify your dating habits and leads to self awareness. Sounds simple but the workbook really makes you more aware of your love/lust life and according to the author, Brenda Lide, “You are investing in revelations about you, and only you can control what you do with them”!

This would be a good gift for a girlfriend who always wants to know why she keeps choosing the wrong man (be sure she really wants to know before purchasing!) and for women who want to be more aware of their dating habits. Ms. Lide has also authored The Everyday Christian Workbook and is in the planning stages for additional workbooks, including The Constant Dieter's Workbook.

Speaking of Ms. Lide, I was able to ask her a few questions. See below our "photo op" for her responses…
